LMG

I'm sure you've all thought about this before, but, how come there is no LMG in Halo? and the detachable turret does not count. Do you think they are gonna add one in Reach?

Ever notice the normal Marines carrying those weapons? Yeah, they're normal sized weapons. (other than the pistol, apparently that's huge for an average Marine)

All guns are used for killing. duh. An LMG has a large ammo count, and packs a good punch. Its a great weapon for a Spartan.

  • Uh... all guns are used for killing. duh. An LMG offers a big punch, large magazines, and can kill a target REALLY fast. Its a perfect Spartan weapon.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MADMAN Redux You know, this brings up a good point, though. Why don't the Spartans have more weapons specifically designed for them? There's the laser, but marines and ODSTs clearly are able to use it. But, c'mon, these are 7-foot-tall juggernauts. They should be able to easily use weapons with greater firepower. [/quote] They spent all of their budget on armor. >_> <_< Silly UNSC Noobs.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] TheWeapon117 maybe a spartan wouldnt use them but marines and army would LMG's are very important to combat operations[/quote] I don't see why not. It could be a power weapon. Of course LMGs are used for suppressive fire, but that doesn't mean you have to. I have wanted a light machine gun in Halo for a long time. Maybe it could have the ROF of the Halo: CE Assault Rifle or something. BTW a light machine gun isn't going to be huge. It should be almost as large as a sniper rifle, a little shorter. It wouldn't be that huge thing you see Jorge lugging around.

I can foresee some design problems for game purposes if you went in that direction, but it could have been a cool thing for them to explore. And Cyber, I believe Jorge's machine gun is supposed to be entirely new to the series, along with the cannon/mortar thing we've seen him holding on the GI cover. [Edited on 03.15.2010 8:50 AM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] TheWeapon117 but that is kind of a dedicated weapon to Jorge[/quote]That LMG has been in nearly every Halo game I think.

  • There's no confirmed SMG for Reach either. In combat, though, the LMG is used more for support and suppression than for actual killing. I can't see a Spartan performing that role.
